Thieves steal car while owner is pumping gas

A Philadelphia-area man's inattention resulted in a crime.

The Philadelphia Police Department posted a video recently of a crime made possible by the victim's inattention while tending to a simple task. 

On Mar. 5,  a 35-year-old male was pumping gas while a 4-door sedan stopped slightly to his left. As the video above shows, a passenger then exited the sedan and entered the victim's car and drove away, tearing the hose from the pump.

Both vehicles then fled the scene.
